High oil pressure on CJ8???

Guys, good bud just had his 258 rebuilt in his scrambler. Now whenever it runs, say around 45 or 50 or whatever, the oil pressure gauge is reading extremely high, almost all the way to the right at 80. What causes really high oil pressure, and what can it hurt?? Also, what should an engine of this size normally run while running and idling??? Thanks guys, Mike. PS Going to look at CJ this sat, will report back on how she is??
